We had an excellent stay at Marina Lodge. Our main reason for visiting was to dive and have somewhere wheelchair accessible to stay.
The diving was brilliant, and with the boat literally being just 30 seconds away made it so easy and convenient. Emperor Divers are an extremely professional and friendly company, the boat staff enabled Paul who can not walk to don his equipment and help in and out of the water. There are many pretty diving sites with great diversity of corals and marine life, we even had dolphins following the boat to one of the dive sites, awesome.
The staff and management at the hotel were excellent and extremely helpful and couldn't do enough to make you comfortable. The room was spacious, well maintained and clean. The grounds were well looked after and pretty, there are loads of lovely little alcoves and spaces for privacy, and plenty of sun loungers by the pool. There is a beach area to the right of the hotel which is great for snorkeling.
For those who are wheelchair users the accommodation is great, there is a very large wet room with roll in shower which has a shower seat which is easy to transfer to with rails surrounding it. There are grab rails around the toilet too. The door widths are very wide. The whole complex is accessible by ramps (some have a moderate incline and you would need a push - the staff are always happy to help).
The food was nice with a good choice (pasta / rice / meat / fish / salad), plenty of fresh foods cooked well. The chefs were regularly checking the food to ensure it was to standard.
Overall we were extremely happy with the facilities, staff, diving and we definitely would like to return again. We would recommend this place to friends who want to dive or have a relaxing holiday.
